4.13

BATTERY 

(1/2)

1

Battery 1 does not require any mainte-

nance. You should not open it or add 

any fluid.

Handle the battery with care 

as it contains sulphuric acid 

which must not come into 

contact with the eyes or 

skin. If it does, wash the affected 

area with plenty of cold water. If 

necessary, consult a doctor.
Ensure that naked flames, red hot 

objects and sparks do not come into 

contact with the battery as there is a 

risk of explosion.

Depending on the vehicle, a system 

continuously checks the battery charge 

status. If this decreases, the message 

“Battery low start engine” is displayed 

on the instrument panel. In this case, 

start the engine. The message will go 

off.
The charge status of your battery can 

decrease especially if you use your ve-

hicle:
–  for short journeys;
–  for driving in town;
–  when the temperature drops;
–  after extended use of energy-con-

suming devices (radio, etc.) with the 

engine switched off.

Before performing any 

action in the engine com-

partment, the ignition must 

be switched off (please see 

the information on “Starting, stop-

ping the engine” in Section 2).

Please note when work-

ing close to the engine that 

it may be hot. The engine 

cooling fan may also start 

at any moment. The 

 warning 

light in the engine compartment re-

minds you of this.

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE 

(1/3)

You should

Wash your car frequently, with the 

engine off, with cleaning products rec-

ommended by the manufacturer (never 

use abrasive products). Rinse thor-

oughly beforehand with a jet:

–  

spots of tree resin and industrial 

grime;

–  

mud in the wheel arches and under-

neath the body which forms damp 

patches;

–  

bird droppings, which cause a 

chemical reaction with the paint that 

rapidly discolours paintwork and 

may even cause the paint to peel 

off;

   wash the vehicle immediately to 

remove these marks since it is im-

possible to remove them by polish-

ing;

–  

salt, particularly in the wheel arches 

and underneath the body after driv-

ing in areas where the roads have 

been gritted.

Remove any plant matter (resin, leaves, 

etc.) from the vehicle regularly.

A well-maintained vehicle will last 

longer. It is therefore recommended to 

maintain the exterior of the vehicle reg-

ularly.
Your vehicle has been treated with very 

effective anti-corrosion products. It is 

nevertheless subject to various outside 

influences.

Corrosive agents in the atmosphere

–  

atmospheric pollution (built-up and 

industrial areas);

–  

saline atmospheres (near the sea, 

particularly in hot weather);

–  

seasonal and damp weather condi-

tions (e.g. road salt in winter, water 

from road cleaners, etc.).

Minor impacts

Abrasive action

Dust and sand in the air, mud, road grit 

thrown up by other vehicles, etc.
You should take a number of minor pre-

cautions in order to safeguard your ve-

hicle against such risks.

Respect local regulations about wash-

ing vehicles (e.g. do not wash your ve-

hicle on a public highway).
Observe the vehicle stopping distances 

when driving on gravelled surfaces to 

prevent paint damage.
Repair, or have repaired quickly, areas 

where the paint has been damaged, to 

prevent corrosion spreading.
Remember to visit the body shop pe-

riodically in order to maintain your 

anti-corrosion warranty. Refer to the 

Maintenance Document.
If it is necessary to clean mechani-

cal components, hinges, etc., spray 

them with products approved by our 

Technical Department to protect them 

after they have been cleaned.

We have selected special products 

to care for your vehicle and you can 

obtain these from the manufactur-

er’s accessory outlets.

4.16

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE 

(2/3)

Degrease or clean using 

high-pressure cleaning 

equipment or by spray-

ing on products not ap-

proved by our Technical 

Department:

–  

mechanical components (e.g.: 

engine compartment);

–  

underbody;

–  

parts with hinges (e.g.: inside the 

doors);

–  

painted plastic external fittings (e.g.: 

bumpers).

Doing this could give rise to corrosion 

or operational faults.

What you should not do

Wash the vehicle in bright sunlight or 

freezing temperatures.
Do not scrape off mud or dirt without 

pre-wetting.
Allow dirt to accumulate on the exterior.
Allow rust to form following minor im-

pacts.
Do not use solvents not approved by 

our Technical Department to remove 

stains as this could damage the paint-

work.
Do not drive in snow or muddy condi-

tions without washing the vehicle, par-

ticularly under the wheel arches and 

body.

4.17

Using a roller type car wash

Return the windscreen wiper stalk to 

the Park position (refer to the informa-

tion on the “Windscreen washer, wiper” 

in Section 1). Check the mounting of 

external accessories, additional lights 

and mirrors, and ensure that the wiper 

blades are secured with adhesive tape.
Remove the radio aerial mast if your 

vehicle is fitted with this equipment. 
Remember to remove the tape and refit 

the antenna after washing.

Vehicles with a matte paint 

finish

This type of paint requires certain pre-

cautions.

You should do the following
Wash the vehicle by hand using plenty 

of water, using a soft cloth or a gentle 

sponge.

Do not do the following
Use wax-based products (polishing).

Rub too hard.

Wash the vehicle in a roller-type car 

wash.

Attach stickers to the paintwork (risk of 

leaving marks).

Wash the vehicle 

using a high-pressure 

cleaning device.

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE 

(3/3)

Cleaning the headlights

As the headlights are made of plastic 

“glass”, use a soft cloth or cotton wool 

to clean them. If this does not clean 

them properly, moisten the cloth with 

soapy water, then wipe clean with a soft 

damp cloth or cotton wool.

Finally, carefully dry off with a soft dry 

cloth.
Do not use cleaning products con-

taining alcohol or utensils (e.g.: a 

scraper).

4.18

Glass instrument panel

(e.g. instrument panel, clock, exterior 

temperature display, radio display, etc.)
Use a soft cloth (or cotton wool).

If this does not clean them properly, 

use a soft cloth (or cotton wool) slightly 

moistened with soapy water and then 

wipe clean with another soft damp cloth 

or cotton wool.

Finally, carefully dry off with a soft dry 

cloth.
Do not use products containing alco-

hol and/or spray fluids on the area.

Seat belts

These must be kept clean.

Use products selected by our Technical 

Department (Approved outlets) or 

warm, soapy water and a sponge and 

wipe with a dry cloth.

Detergents or dyes must not be used 

under any circumstances.

INTERIOR TRIM MAINTENANCE 

(1/2)

Textiles (seats, door trim, etc)

Vacuum-clean the textiles regularly.

Liquid stain
Use soapy water.
Dab lightly (never rub) with a soft cloth, 

rinse and remove the excess.

Solid or pasty stain
Carefully remove the excess solid or 

pasty material immediately  with a 

spatula (working from the edges to the 

centre to avoid spreading the stain).

Clean as for a liquid stain.

Special instructions for sweets or 

chewing gum
Put an ice cube on the stain to solidify 

it, then proceed as for a solid stain.

A well-maintained vehicle will last 

longer. It is therefore recommended to 

maintain the interior of the vehicle regu-

larly.
A stain should always be dealt with 

swiftly.
Whatever type of stain is on the trim, 

use cold (or warm) soapy water with 

natural soap.
Detergents (washing-up liquid, pow-

dered products, alcohol-based prod-

ucts) should not be used.
Use a soft cloth.
Rinse and soak up the excess.

For further recommendations for 

maintaining the interior, and/or for 

any unsatisfactory results, please 

see an authorised dealer.

4.19

You should not:

Position objects such as deodorants, 

scents etc. near air vents as this could 

damage your dashboard trim.

Use high-pressure 

cleaning equipment or 

sprays inside the pas-

senger compartment: 

without careful use, this equipment 

could impair the correct functioning 

of the electrical or electronic compo-

nents in the vehicle, or have other 

detrimental effects.

INTERIOR TRIM MAINTENANCE 

(2/2)

Removal/replacing removable 

equipment originally fitted in 

the vehicle

If you need to remove equipment in 

order to clean the passenger com-

partment (for example, mats), always 

ensure that they are correctly refitted 

and are the right way around (the driv-

er’s mat should be fitted on the driver’s 

side, etc.) and fit them with the compo-

nents supplied with the equipment (for 

example, the driver mat should always 

be fixed using the pre-fitted mounting 

components).
With the vehicle stationary, always 

ensure that nothing will impede driving 

(anything obstructing the pedals, heel 

wedged by the mat etc.).

In case of puncture

Depending on the vehicle, a tyre infla-

tion kit or emergency spare wheel is 

provided (refer to the following pages).

Special note
The Tyre Pressure Monitor function 

does not check the emergency spare 

wheel (the wheel replaced by the emer-

gency spare wheel disappears from the 

instrument panel display).
Refer to the information on the “Tyre 

pressure monitoring system” in 

Section 2.

PUNCTURE, EMERGENCY SPARE WHEEL 

(1/2)

If the emergency spare wheel has been stored for several years, have it 

checked by your Dealer to ensure that it is safe to use.

Vehicles fitted with an emergency spare wheel smaller than the 

four other wheels:

–  Never fit more than one emergency spare wheel to the same vehicle.

–  As the punctured wheel is wider than the emergency spare wheel, the vehicle’s 

ground clearance is reduced.

–  Replace the emergency spare wheel as soon as possible with a wheel with the 

same dimensions as the original.

–  When this is fitted to the vehicle, which must only be a temporary measure, the 

driving speed must not exceed the speed indicated on the label on the wheel.

–  Fitting an emergency spare wheel may alter the way the vehicle usually runs. 

Avoid sudden acceleration or deceleration and reduce your speed when cor-

nering.

–  If you need to use snow chains, fit the emergency spare wheel to the rear axle 

and check the tyre pressure.

5.3

Emergency spare wheel A

To get to it:
–  open the tailgate;

–  Depending on the vehicle, lift up the 

mobile floor;

–  lift the boot carpet;

–  remove the tool kit by lifting it by its 

handles;

–  unscrew the central mounting;

–  remove the emergency spare wheel.
Note: Store the punctured wheel in the 

storage bag provided, along with the 

tool kit and put them in the boot.

PUNCTURE, EMERGENCY SPARE WHEEL 

(2/2)

If the vehicle is parked on 

the hard shoulder, you must 

warn other road users of 

your vehicle’s presence 

with a warning triangle or with other 

devices as per the legislation apply-

ing to the country you are in.

A

5.4

TYRE PRESSURE KIT 

(1/3)

The kit is only approved for 

inflating the tyres of the ve-

hicle originally equipped 

with the kit.

It must never be used to inflate 

the tyres of another vehicle, or any 

other inflatable object (rubber ring, 

rubber boat, etc.).
Avoid spillage on skin when han-

dling the repair product bottle. If 

droplets do leak out, rinse them off 

with plenty of water.
Keep the repair kit away from chil-

dren.
Do not dispose of the empty bottle 

in the countryside. Return it to your 

approved dealer or to a recycling or-

ganisation.
The bottle has a limited service 

life which is indicated on its label. 

Check the expiry date.
Contact an approved dealer to re-

place the inflation tube and repair 

product bottle.

A

B

The kit repairs tyres when 

tread A has been dam-

aged by objects smaller 

than 4 mm. It cannot repair 

all types of puncture, such as cuts 

larger than 4 mm, or cuts in tyre 

sidewall B.
Ensure also that the wheel rim is in 

good condition.
Do not pull out the foreign body 

causing the puncture if it is still in 

the tyre.

Do not attempt to use the 

inflation kit if the tyre has 

been damaged as a result 

of driving with a puncture.

You should therefore carefully check 

the condition of the tyre sidewalls 

before any operation.
Driving with underinflated, flat or 

punctured tyres can be dangerous 

and may make the tyre impossible 

to repair.
This repair is temporary.
A tyre which has been punctured 

should always be inspected (and re-

paired, where possible) as soon as 

possible by a specialist.
When taking a tyre which has been 

repaired using this kit to be replaced, 

you must inform the specialist.
When driving, vibration may be felt 

due to the presence of the repair 

product injected into the tyre.

5.5

TYRE PRESSURE KIT 

(2/3)

In the event of a puncture, use the kit 

located in the boot, underneath the 

boot carpet.

With the engine running and the 

parking brake applied,
–  Unscrew the cap from recess 3 on 

the bottle;

–  unscrew the bottle cap 2;
–  screw the bottle 2 onto the compres-

sor at the bottle recess point 3

–  unscrew the valve cap on the rele-

vant wheel and screw the inflation 

adapter 6 onto the valve;

–  disconnect any accessories previ-

ously connected to the vehicle’s ac-

cessories sockets;

– the plug 4 must be connected to the 

vehicle accessories socket;

– press switch 5 to inflate the tyre to 

the recommended pressure (please 

refer to the information in the section 

on “Tyre pressure”);

Before using this kit, park 

the vehicle at a sufficient 

distance from traffic, switch 

on the hazard warning 

lights, apply the handbrake, ask all 

passengers to leave the vehicle and 

keep them away from traffic.

If the vehicle is parked on 

the hard shoulder, you must 

warn other road users of 

your vehicle’s presence 

with a warning triangle or with other 

devices as per the legislation apply-

ing to the country you are in.

–  after a maximum of 10 minutes, stop 

inflating and read the pressure (on 

pressure gauge 1).
Note: while the container is empty-

ing (approximately 30 seconds), the 

pressure gauge 5 will briefly indicate 

a pressure of up to 6 bar. The pres-

sure will then drop.

–  adjust the pressure: to increase it, 

continue inflating with the kit.

If the recommended pressure of 

1.8 bar cannot be achieved after 

10 minutes, repair is impossible. Do 

not drive the vehicle. Consult an au-

thorised dealer.
